PUBLISHED: 14:55 04 September 2014 | UPDATED: 14:55 04 September 2014
A young woman is closer to her dream of becoming a project manager, thanks to an apprenticeship scheme offered by Tower Hamlets Council.
Sade Hall, 20, from Tower Hamlets, is an apprentice with construction company Guildmore and is gaining on-the-job experience in her chosen career.
In her role Sade helps to run the site office by answering phone calls, sending emails, keeping the office tidy for client visits and making sure that documentation is up to date and filed correctly.
She was referred to the scheme under the council’s Skillsmatch service.
She said: “The position I was given provides a great foundation for the running of a site and all the paperwork that’s done behind the whole array of construction. I’m able to interact with many individuals all with a different role to play.
“This gives me a basic insight on each position, all differing massively but come together to create a strong working force, which is emphasised working on such a historical building as the Poplar Baths.”
Sade added: “I would recommend this employment scheme to anyone who is serious about a career path in construction.”
